Elvis's Cadillac meets 'The Fast & the Furious' in Hollywood sale
GWS Auctions will be selling Elvis Presley and Hollywood automotive memorabilia in Los Angeles later this month
A selection of Hollywood cars and memorabilia, including a Cadillac Seville bought by Elvis Presley and his personal Gideon Bible, are being sold by GWS Auctions on August 25 in the hills of Los Angeles.
The 1977 Sea-Mist Green Cadillac Seville, the last car 'The King' bought before his death later that year, has a 5.7-litre V8 engine and a wheelbase of exactly 2.9 metres. He bought it at Hillcrest Motors in Beverly Hills for Nancy Reese, a girl he met in the dealership while he was buying a silver and black Cadillac for himself.
